REDDING Calif. - There is just one more day until the California recall election.

Governor Gavin Newsom needs just 50%, plus one of the votes to remain in office. Action News Now spoke to some people at the voting site in Downtown Redding.

Tom Roberts lives in Redding and says he's against the recall, saying Newsom did a good job slowing the coronavirus down when the pandemic first started.

"I think Newsom did a pretty fair job when it came to the pandemic," Roberts said. "I knew early on in March 2020, and he took a lot of action. It has helped slow down the pandemic. Governing a state of 44 million people it's almost an impossible job, overall, he has done a pretty good job."

Meanwhile, a woman named Elly voted to recall Newsom. She said the deal-breaker for her was the incident at the French Laundry.

"I voted for him to be recalled because I feel like he is being hypocritical," Elly said. "For one thing, he has the mandate to require everyone to wear a mask, but he himself did not follow it, he was at a party without any mask with a bunch of people that were less than six feet apart."

Currently, over 36,600 ballots have been returned from Shasta County, and mail-delivered ballots still need to be counted, according to the Shasta County Clerks and Elections Office.

The Shasta County Clerks and Elections will be open for any last voters tomorrow from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
